ANTIQUES ROADSHOW selects items for broadcast or webcast on a case-by-case basis.
In addition to editorial considerations, the series' producers examine whether the inclusion of such objects offers an opportunity to educate the public and supply context about their historical and cultural significance.
ANTIQUES ROADSHOW recognizes there are objects in the marketplace that are controversial or distasteful and will exercise discretion with respect to such items.
In addition, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW only features items in accord with U.S. law, including the Endangered Species Act (ESA), U.S. regulations for implementing the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), and other applicable laws.
ANTIQUES ROADSHOW maintains an Endangered Species special topics page with additional resources and information related to these issues.
